And now the good part about his IPv8 and IPv16 delusion. (Yep nicely pasted from ietf lists which he also spammed and to which he doesn't have an answer as it undermines it all ;) Dear Mister Jim Fleming, You might read up on your IPv8 ideas and check: http://www.iana.org/assignments/version-numbers there you will notice the following piece: 8<------------ Assigned Internet Version Numbers Decimal Keyword Version References ------- ------- ------- ---------- 0 Reserved [JBP] 1-3 Unassigned [JBP] 4 IP Internet Protocol [RFC791,JBP] 5 ST ST Datagram Mode [RFC1190,JWF] 6 IPv6 Internet Protocol version 6 [RFC1752] 7 TP/IX TP/IX: The Next Internet [RXU] 8 PIP The P Internet Protocol [PXF] 9 TUBA TUBA [RXC] 10-14 Unassigned [JBP] 15 Reserved [JBP] ------------>8 IPv8 == PIP (The P internet Protocol), check for instance: http://ntrg.cs.tcd.ie/undergrad/4ba2/ipng/ian.pip.html Quote: "PIP has provider rooted variable length hierarchical addressing. IP has static 32 bit addresses." Thus you are absolutely missing the point with your 64 bits and 128 bits. As for your imaginary IPv16, it won't even fit in the version field. Nor are there any documents to be found about it. Now go make up your own namingscheme, create the documents for the protocols you invented and then submit those to the IETF, which will review them and maybe then you will be taken serious and not taken for the spammer which you currently are. Greets, Jeroen
